Our founder, Frank E. Everett, would tell his wife every morning,

“I am going to make my Customers happy today.”

This was a new concept in the Depression era of 1937; after three generations this is still our guiding philosophy.

Alexander was so helpful and quick with service. He was hired to remove the swinging door between the front of house and back of house of the store I work at.
